Last week on “The Sam Malone Show,” Dan Gainor of the right-wing Media Research Center alleged that the Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold marriage equality is part of a wider government war by liberals to crush all opposition.
“For people who are white, cisgender Christians, they’re coming for you,” Gainor said. “They’re coming for your faith, your family, your freedom, your guns, your free speech.”
Gainor went so far as to compare liberals to Nazis: “Just like the Brownshirts in the 1930s, they are telegraphing their attack, they are telling you what they are going to do, they are telling you how they are going to do it to you and if you are caught off guard when this happens, then you’re a fool.”
Malone agreed with Gainor’s dire assessment, alleging that President Obama is engineering this supposed chaos in a “distractionary” attempt to “take control.”
Michael Farris: Supreme Court Destroyed 'Entire Institution Of Our Courts' In Pursuit Of 'Rainbow Utopia'
Michael Farris, the chancellor of Patrick Henry College and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, told Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson yesterday that with its ruling striking down bans on gay marriage, the Supreme Court threw out “the entire institution of our courts and our judiciary and respect for the law” in pursuit of a “rainbow utopia.”
Repeating the Religious Right line that Justices Ruth Bader Kingsburg and Elena Kagan should have recused themselves from the case because they have officiated legal same-sex marriages, Farris suggested setting up a “tribunal” to review recusal motions for Supreme Court justices. If such a body existed, Farris insisted, the marriage decision “would have gone 4-3 in the other direction.”
As it is, he said, the Supreme Court just threw the entire institution of the courts out the window: “I have a hard time imagining myself standing before the Supreme Court and saying ‘your honor’ or ‘Justice.’ They’re politicians in black robes, they’re acting as a legislature. And the entire institution of our courts and our judiciary and respect for the law all have been thrown away by the Supreme Court of the United States in pursuit of this rainbow utopia. It’s crazy.”
Farris also discussed ways for churches to avoid public accommodation laws that prohibit businesses from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation, implying that churches will be forced to perform weddings for gay or lesbian couples. (In reality, churches are not forced to perform marriages they disagree with.)
“If a church gets attacked legally on this basis, they should fight, they should defend,” he said, adding that “it’s far, far better to be in trouble with a gay rights group in court than it is to be in trouble with Almighty God for participating in evil.”
Sam Rohrer: Gay Rights Activists Don't Realize They've 'Lost Great, Great Freedom' With Gay Marriage Ruling
Sam Rohrer of the American Pastors Network appeared on The Dove TV yesterday to discuss the Supreme Court decision striking down state bans on gay marriage, where he and host Perry Atkinson warned that the ruling will eventually lead to churches losing their tax-exempt status, having their ministry broadcasts shut down, and seeing their pastors hauled off to jail.
But, Rohrer warned, it is not just anti-gay Christians who have lost their freedom as a result of this ruling, but the entire nation because freedom only exists because of God and America has just booted God out and effectively turned itself into a dictatorship.
"If you want to say, 'God, I don't need you,' then God says, 'Fine, you just go have your own way but you're also going to suffer the consequences of having your own way,'" Rohrer said. "They don't understand, I don't believe, what the end result is going to be because they themselves are going to lose the civil freedom to do a lot of the things in their life that they would like to do that they think are just going to be automatically there, not understanding that the only reason we have civil freedom, the only reason we have a First, and Second, and Third, and Fourth, and Fifth Amendment and so forth is because of the biblical underpinnings that permit it."
"When they throw all of that off, you ultimately go just to the power of those who happen to be in office at that point," he continued, "and it's dictatorship. I guarantee you, those right now who think they are savoring the moment because they think they have won have actually lost great, great freedom."
End Times radio host Rick Wiles said on his “Trunews” radio program yesterday that he made an appearance in Washington, D.C., on Friday to warn people celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision striking down state bans on same-sex marriage that the country, as a result of the court ruling, will soon face divine destruction.
This will be his final warning call as a prophetic watchman, Wiles said, since now “judgment is certain.”
“In 2012, the Lord had shown me that America is morphing into Babylon and I will say this to you: The metamorphic transformation is complete. America became Mystery Babylon last Friday and I know her fate,” he said, adding that the Bible advises people to “flee from the midst of Babylon.”
Wiles told Alan Colmes today that he is preparing to leave the U.S. to an undisclosed location, claiming that God will “lift His hand of protection from this nation” and “permit America’s enemies to attack this nation.”
He also predicted economic devastation, food shortages, “disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking.”
“America is over,” Wiles said. “The final stage will be a surprise attack by America’s enemies which will end up with foreign soldiers on the soil of the United States of America and the American people will go into slavery.”
Warning that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision puts religious freedom “absolutely, unquestionably and unequivocally” at risk, former Southern Baptist Convention political official Richard Land said today that the decision could even land pastors in jail for refusing to perform same-sex marriages.
“Unless we have a spiritual awakening in America, the battle for traditional marriage is over and the battle for religious freedom has begun,” Land told Newsmax’s J.D. Hayworth.
“I know it’s difficult for liberals to understand this, but we have convictions,” he said. “And convictions can’t be coerced and they can’t be intimidated and they can’t be threatened. We’re going to speak the truth in love. Just because five lawyers say same-sex marriage is legal, that doesn’t make it moral and that doesn’t make it right.”
When Hayworth asked him if the Supreme Court’s decision means pastors could end up in jail for refusing to perform marriages for gay and lesbian couples, Land responded that “it could” after a few “intermediate steps.”
Of course, in the dozens of states that allowed gay and lesbian couples to marry before last week’s decision, not one pastor has been thrown into jail for refusing to perform such a marriage, just as nearly 50 years after the Supreme Court struck down interracial marriage bans, clergy are still free to refuse to perform such marriages. Even some of Land’s fellow Southern Baptist leaders have denied the possibility that pastors will be sent to jail for refusing to perform gay couple’s weddings.
Writing in the far-right outlet BarbWire today, conservative pundit Sylvia Thompson says that people are getting ready to take to the “streets in civil disobedience” with “planned acts of resistance” just like during the days of the Civil Rights Movement, but this time it will be the “victims of homofascism” marching in “opposition to homosexual sham ‘marriages.’”
Most Americans, Thompson hopes, will not “bow to homofascism,” even as “more and more Americans will be persecuted, prosecuted, and imprisoned as this Court ruling goes into effect.”
“At some point, Americans being so treated will say ‘No’ and stop responding out of fear,” Thompson writes. “All of America will then grasp what homofascism truly means, as the Germans eventually grasped what Nazism meant.”
I posted an article at Renew America several months ago titled “The Coming Criminalization of Christianity in America.” I suggested that the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision on homosexual “marriage” would be to enshrine sodomy into American law and in so doing, would decree that all Americans must bow to homofascism. As expected, they have done the despicable deed. Now what?
Many, many so-called Christian leaders will, of course, do nothing other than what they have done throughout the decades, and that is effectively ignore the homosexual lobby and its lawlessness. Other so-called Christian leaders are clearly apostate and have embraced that lawlessness, while falsely claiming that God agrees with them. That is a despicable lie. God does not agree, as Scripture clearly reveals. And then there are those believing Christian leaders who will fight evil. They are the hope of this nation, at least until Almighty God ultimately determines America’s fate.
Pastor William Owens (a black minister) of The Coalition for American Action and Principles (CAAP), consisting of ministers of all races, has decided to take a firm stand.
His organization will view the Court’s pernicious decision as equivalent to previous Courts’ decisions against black Americans, who sought equal treatment under law. That was the time when a black American minister Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his followers used the only tool available to them against a gargantuan lawless court system. They took to the streets in civil disobedience. Pastor Owens has announced that his organization will consider doing the same to fight the current Court’s ruling against Christians.
In a similar vein, former high school coach Dave Daubenmire has formed a large group of Christians called the Salt and Light Brigade, referencing Christ’s call to believers to be the salt and light of the world (Matthew 5:11-14). Coach Daubenmire indicates that he will be posting updates on planned acts of resistance to the lawlessness of this Supreme Court.
Bible Christians and the rest of the millions of Americans who made known their staunch opposition to homosexual sham “marriages” through the ballot box (in 31 states), can now stand with these brave men and others like them who have fearlessly chosen to resist. We can declare boldly that we will not be disenfranchised. Why should we allow disenfranchisement in America, where so much blood has been spilled to guarantee us the right of conscience?
More and more Americans will be persecuted, prosecuted, and imprisoned as this Court ruling goes into effect. It is certain to play out that way, because eventually the persecuted will stop accepting lawless court rulings that result in their bankruptcy and Naziesque brainwashing sessions (“sensitivity training”) that are punishment for noncompliance with evil.
At some point, Americans being so treated will say “No” and stop responding out of fear. All of America will then grasp what homofascism truly means, as the Germans eventually grasped what Nazism meant.
With the organization and planning that Pastor Owens, Coach Daubenmire, and groups like them will provide, victims of homofascism can now share a sense that they are not alone. Organized Americans stand with them.
WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah patted himself on the back in a column yesterday for deciding to “risk prosecution for ‘hate thoughts’ by raising what the Bible says about homosexuality,” which he said will lead to God’s judgment.
“Judgment isn’t just coming. It is here,” Farah said. “This is it. It could get worse, but the Supreme Court ruling on marriage was, in fact, itself a form of divine judgment on America.”
Farah, who predicted that millions of people will flee America as a result of the gay marriage ruling, said that Americans are “getting their just deserts [sic], as are the rest of us who have not been the salt and light needed to hold back judgment.”
“Progress on this journey often comes in small increments, sometimes two steps forward, one step back, propelled by the persistent effort of dedicated citizens,” Obama said. “And then sometimes there are days like this, when that slow, steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a thunderbolt.”
I found that last line to be revealing.
In the Bible, justice indeed can come swiftly as an act of God. But the only time the word “thunderbolt” is used in Scripture, in Psalm 78:48, is to describe judgment on the land of Egypt during the Exodus.
That’s what I believe hit America like a thunderbolt Friday – not justice, but judgment.
God is giving America over to her lusts and pride because, like ancient Israel, she has turned away her heart from Him, though He was like a faithful husband to them both.
America is, indeed, getting justice, but not the way Obama and the moral anarchists think of it. They are getting their just deserts [sic], as are the rest of us who have not been the salt and light needed to hold back judgment.
Judgment isn’t just coming. It is here. This is it. It could get worse, but the Supreme Court ruling on marriage was, in fact, itself a form of divine judgment on America.
Let me risk prosecution for “hate thoughts” by raising what the Bible says about homosexuality, the behavior that opened this spiritual Pandora’s box. …
There were no thunderbolts last week. But, rest assured, they are coming.
On Friday’s episode of “The Savage Nation,” far-right radio host Michael Savage warned listeners that there are “tens of millions of people who are ready to snap” just like Dylann Roof did in Charleston, South Carolina, as a result of the Obama administration’s policies.
“There’s a lot of blame to go around,” Savage lamented about society’s supposed moral decay, which he blamed on liberal public schools and the separation of church and state. He called out President Obama for being a “phony, fundraising fraud” and Hillary Clinton for “defending illegals who are overrunning our institution.” He also pointed fingers at the American Medical Association “who dispense drugs like Kool Aid.”
Savage reserved his biggest critique for “the hatred being imposed upon this country by this criminal government, flooding American with criminals, rapists, murderers, thieves” through immigration. These conditions, he continued, are “affecting people and driving them crazy” and “affecting tens of millions of people who are ready to snap.”
The radio host’s rant is the latest installment of a series of controversial remarks about the shooting, including his suggestion that Roof may have been “a programmed killer set loose by the government.”
Last week on “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” National Center for Policy Analysis president and former GOP congressman Allen West said that he supported South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s call to remove the Confederate flag from state capitol grounds. However, West denounced liberals who also called for the flag’s removal, joining Rios in comparing them to extremist groups like ISIS and the Taliban that have destroyed historical monuments.
“There is a seeming collusion between liberal progressive socialists and Islamofascists,” West said.
That the magazine Rolling Stone used a photo of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover…for an article about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
West continued: “The left has to be held accountable for the things that they’re doing and their hypocrisy has to be brought out. The Taliban destroyed the shrines and the statues of Bamyan provinces; ISIS has gone around destroying the artifacts there and religious shrines and memorials in Mosul and also Palmyra; and now we have the left in the United States of America defacing memorials and part of our history. So there’s a very interesting, I don’t want to say commonality, but it is something to be said about how these individuals want to erase history.”
Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission has weighed in with his thoughts on the Supreme Court decision striking down gay marriage bans, telling anti-gay Christians to take solace in the knowledge that "this ruling will ultimately be overturned" by God.
"Morally, the Bible could not be more clear," Cass said, on his "Defending a Christian Worldview" program over the weekend. "Homosexuality is consistently condemned in the strongest possible terms ... Science proves living a homosexual lifestyle is devastating, medically and psychologically. It's not loving the encourage people to violate God's moral law, especially when the consequences are so destructive. Now we're sending a morally confused message to our children and grandchildren. God is not pleased."
"The good news," he continued, "is this ruling will ultimately be overturned. The real triune Supreme Court in Heaven has already ruled: marriage is a union of one man and one woman. We can confidently celebrate that which God has ordained because time and eternity are on our side."
